Admissions and Policies
St. Sebastian Parish School seeks to admit any student who desires an academic, disciplined, God-centered education. Both admission and continued enrollment of a child in the school are generally subject to the following guidelines, although the Principal and/or his assistant has the discretionary authority to not accept a student whose academic record or conduct does not meet St. Sebastian's standards.
Admission and continued enrollment of a child is subject to the school’s ability to meet the child’s needs with available resources. If the Principal determines that the appropriate program of instruction is not available at the Parish school, the Principal will suggest an appropriate alternative school or program.
A child entering Kindergarten MUST be 5 years old by August 1st.
Continued enrollment of a child in the school is subject to the child's adherence with the School's Code of Conduct and the parents' adherence with all school policies, including the St. Sebastian School Tuition Policy. The Pastor and Principal reserve the absolute right to dismiss a child from the school for disciplinary or other reasons.
A child who has been removed from the school for any reason may re-enroll with the approval of the Principal and the Pastor.
A family will be asked to withdraw their child or children from the school if they fail to meet their tuition obligation.
In addition to the tuition paid to the school, Parishioners with children enrolled in the school are expected to contribute to the support of the Church through the Sunday offertory collection to the full extent of their ability. Offertory contributions legally cannot and will not be credited toward school tuition.
For admission of transfer students, parents shall present the proper transfer or some appropriate verification from the school previously attended. For children transferring from the school, upon written request from the receiving school and payment of all previous fees, all records from the school, including health records shall be transferred.
St. Sebastian School admits students of any race, color, sex, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students in this school.
St. Sebastian School does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, or national and ethnic origin in administration of educational policies, athletic or other school administered programs.
